Anodal transcranial direct current stimulation of prefrontal cortex enhances working memory
Previous studies have claimed that weak transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) induces persisting excitability changes in the human motor cortex that can be more pronounced than corticalExpand

Effects of transcranial direct current stimulation on working memory in patients with Parkinson's disease
OBJECTIVES Cognitive impairment is a common feature in Parkinson's disease (PD) and is an important predictor of quality of life. Past studies showed that some aspects of cognition, such as workingExpand

Transcranial direct current stimulation of the unaffected hemisphere in stroke patients
Recovery of function after a stroke is determined by a balance of activity in the neural network involving both the affected and the unaffected brain hemispheres. Increased activity in the affectedExpand

The sertraline vs. electrical current therapy for treating depression clinical study: results from a factorial, randomized, controlled trial.
IMPORTANCE Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) trials for major depressive disorder (MDD) have shown positive but mixed results. OBJECTIVE To assess the combined safety and efficacy ofExpand

Repeated sessions of noninvasive brain DC stimulation is associated with motor function improvement in stroke patients.
PURPOSE Recent evidence has suggested that a simple technique of noninvasive brain stimulation - transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) - is associated with a significant motor functionExpand

Noninvasive cortical stimulation with transcranial direct current stimulation in Parkinson's disease
Electrical stimulation of deep brain structures, such as globus pallidus and subthalamic nucleus, is widely accepted as a therapeutic tool for patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). CorticalExpand

A sham-controlled, phase II trial of transcranial direct current stimulation for the treatment of central pain in traumatic spinal cord injury
Abstract Past evidence has shown that motor cortical stimulation with invasive and non‐invasive brain stimulation is effective to relieve central pain. Here we aimed to study the effects of another,Expand

Treatment of major depression with transcranial direct current stimulation.
Various forms of brain stimulation appear to be effective in the treatment of depression. Eletroconvulsive therapy (ECT) is the most effective treatment of depression available, but it is associatedExpand

Temporal cortex direct current stimulation enhances performance on a visual recognition memory task in Alzheimer disease
Several studies have reported that transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), a non-invasive method of neuromodulation, enhances some aspects of working memory in healthy and Parkinson diseaseExpand

A randomized, sham-controlled, proof of principle study of transcranial direct current stimulation for the treatment of pain in fibromyalgia.
OBJECTIVE Recent evidence suggests that fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by dysfunctional brain activity. Because transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can modulate brain activityExpand
